Secret Squirrel cake

SS cake detail

My Secret Squirrel Cake is made up of marble cake tree trunks, with a chocolate and hazelnut squirrel hidden inside. Within the marble cake mixture is white, milk and dark chocolate and a whole assortment of nuts. Using ground nuts, nut milks and nut oils the cake is kept moist as well as providing winning flavour combinations like dark chocolate, coffee and walnut. My Chocolate and hazelnut ganache and buttercream provides the effect of the tree’s bark with added chocolate woodchips in the guise of biscuit and chocolate shavings. An assortment of coconut acorns, ginger biscuit leaves, chocolate twigs and a bountiful collection of nuts make up the surrounding forest of edible foliage. Nutty but very nice!
